Tao Te Ching – Lao Tzu – Chapter 68


善為士者,不武;善戰者,不怒;善勝敵者,不與;善用人者,為之下。
是謂不爭之德,是謂用人之力,是謂配天古之極。

The great generals are not warlike
The great warriors do not get angry
Those who are good at defeating enemies do not engage them
Those who are good at managing people lower themselves

It is called the virtue of non-contention
It is called the power of managing people
It is called being harmonious with heaven
The ultimate principle of the ancients

This is in line with the principle of Heaven, which has not changed since ancient times.
(Translated by Derek Lin, 1994 )

He who is good at leading soldiers, do not use force;
He who is good at war is not impulsive;
He who is good at defeating the enemy does not fight directly with the enemy.
He who is good at employing people are humble.

The above are the indisputable moral character of “Te,” which can manage the people. It is in line with the principle of Heaven, which has not changed since ancient times.
